What is Burglary?

Burglary, as defined in the legal context, is a crime that involves unauthorized entry into a structure with the intent to commit an offense therein. While "robbery" and "burglary" are often used interchangeably in everyday language, they are distinct concepts in criminal law. Robbery refers to taking another's property through force or threat of force, typically in their presence. It involves a confrontation between the perpetrator and the victim. On the other hand, burglary involves unlawfully entering a structure to commit a crime inside. Crucially, burglary does not require the presence of, or confrontation with, any person.

If you have been charged with burglary, you must seek legal representation immediately. The penalties for this type of crime are incredibly severe, and you need to have someone fighting for your rights and future.

What Are the Penalties for Burglary in New York?

The penalties for those convicted of burglary in New York will vary depending on how the felony is classified, with burglary ranging from a Class D felony to a Class B felony.

  • First-Degree Burglary: This is considered a Class B felony. The maximum penalty can be up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
  • Second-Degree Burglary: This is categorized as a Class C felony. The maximum penalty for this offense can be up to 15 years in prison.
  • Third-Degree Burglary: This is a Class D felony. The offender could face up to 7 years in prison if found guilty.

In addition to prison sentences, convicted offenders may also be required to pay substantial fines, and their convictions will remain on their permanent criminal record, potentially affecting future employment and other opportunities.

Defenses Against Burglary Charges

Having a knowledgeable legal team is crucial to exploring potential defenses when facing burglary charges. Our attorneys at Mottola Uris Law, PLLC, are adept at crafting defense strategies tailored to your specific case:

  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating no intent to commit a crime upon entry is a powerful defense.
  • Unlawful Search and Seizure: Challenging the legality of the search leading to your arrest can render evidence inadmissible.
  • Mistaken Identity: Proving mistaken identity and establishing innocence is a compelling defense.
  • Insufficient Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's evidence can weaken their case significantly.
  • Alibi: Presenting a credible alibi proving your absence during the alleged burglary is a persuasive defense.

Mottola Uris Law, PLLC has a proven track record of successfully employing these defenses to secure favorable outcomes for our clients.
